The Sheet Music Archives Cantus Durus in Mariestad have about 1000 meters of shelves with sheets of music, scores, song-books, magazines etc.
To maintain and keep control of the collections we keep a database that today (aug 2011) contains over 300.000 posts. But this is only about half of what we have so we continously add more and more information into this database.
